Project 365-Week 20

The official countdown to the end of school has started! Only 10 more school days. This week has been full with ball games, meetings, baking and fun. Here's a peek at our week.


We had a fun and low key Mother's Day. Kevin's parents came for lunch and afterwards we convinced Grammie to play "Just Dance" with us!

She did great and was such a good sport about it! Nothing better than dancing with the family!!

Also received a couple of great things from the kids....

A sweet poem from Ella with her hand prints!

A sheet of reasons I'm special from Ethan. Do you see why he thinks I'm smart? He's in first grade so I'm still ok in math now!!


Ran quite a few errands today, as there is a lot on my plate for the month of May. I hadn't eaten so stopped for this....

Burrito Bowl from Chipotle...YUMMY!!


Bryce has piano on Tuesday afternoons, so after his lesson he ran an errand with me. We had some good (and interesting) conversation while driving. (Does anyone else have better success talking to their kids while driving?) Anyway, I snapped this picture at a light...he tried to turn but wasn't quick enough!

Later that evening our whole family was gone, so when we came home the girls wanted to take the dog out. When they came in this is what they looked like.

It had started raining and they had a ball playing in it.


Have you seen or tried these?

They are super good. I used them in trail mix that I normally put pretzels and plain M&M's in. Much better this way. So far I have only seen them at WalMart and Sam's Club.


What do these things have in common?

These were the items used for Reese's haircut. Since Kevin isn't working we have eliminated a lot of things and unfortunately the groomer had to be one. Since Reese is a miniature poodle he has to have regular cuts. Also, the last time he was at the groomer they said that I was going to have to get a sedative from the vet before I brought him, because he won't stay still. We decided we could do it. We borrowed trimmers from a friend and went to work.

It took 2 of us over one hour and 45 minutes to trim him!! I can't tell you how much string cheese and peanut butter we went through. Then I still had to bathe and dry him, and his face isn't done yet. I'm thinking the sedative might be a better idea!


I had special dishwasher unloading helper today.

Later the girls were outside playing when Kyla came in to tell us Ella was stuck and needed help. Where was she stuck?

In the baby swing. They wanted it up to push their babies in, but apparently Ella thought getting in it would be better!


Today we spent the day at the ballpark. Bryce, Ethan and Ella all had games.

Ella warming up....notice the fashionable wearing of the visor!!

Hope you have had a great week too!!


  1. I still need to look into getting that game!!

    I have NEVER seen pretzel M&Ms.....yum! I must find these!!!

    I so miss the days at the ball park. That was our 2nd many good memories there!!!

    hey we are heading up there in July!!! we need to plan to get together!

  2. Tori
    Chicken Burrito bowls from Chipotle are my absolute favorite dish! I just can't get enough of them! It's great to see your family enjoying times together inside AND outside!

  3. Ooh - burrito bol is one of my VERY favorite things!

    My dad rigged up a sling to hold their cockapoo so he could groom her (no way was he paying someone else to do it!).

  4. I my hubs was just talking about those m&m I must try them. Great ball pictures. We love baseball over here. Cute dancing shot too. Dancing as a family is so fun.

  5. I laughed at the look on that poor puppy's face. I used to have a bichon and I did a lot of his hair cuts. It was an all day job and he was a good boy! I feel for you.
    Enjoyed the rest of your shots too.
    Thanks for visiting me at my blog. Come back again so I can get to know you! :)

  6. Sweet notes from the kids :)
    I love the pic of the girls in from the rain.

  7. I got a special fill in the blank Mother's Day card too!

    Sounds like your puppy dog is an active one!

    And yes, I've tried pretzel M&M's and don't care for them much :(
